In recent weeks I have been getting bits and pieces done including the spline roadbed. What a great way to do roadbed, a little time consuming but cheap and the result is better than I have ever had. For ideas on how to do this see Ian’s blog. Other then that I have done a small mock up of the yard to see if I am happy with it. Some paper templates were used and bits I have placed where they should be and now that the yard is settled I can move on to securing the risers.
The goods loop consists of crane, goods shed and stock race. Loco will consist of turntable, water column, coal stage and ash pit. That will be sufficient to make a nice scene and keep the operation interesting.
